"Enzymatic and cellular signalling biosensors are used to decipher the activities of complex biological systems. Biosensors for monitoring G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), the most drugged class of proteins in the human body, are plentiful and vary in utility, form and function. Their applications have continually expanded our understanding of this important protein class. Here, we briefly summarize a subset of this field with accelerating importance: transducer biosensors measuring receptor-coupling and selectivity, with an emphasis on sensors measuring receptor association and activation of heterotrimeric signalling complexes."
